Donald Trump is wasting no time fighting to get back to the White House.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee, 77, is expected to attend a UFC fight Saturday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ — two days after the shocking guilty verdict in his Manhattan “hush money” trial, according to the Wall Street Journal.

It will be his first public appearance since he vowed that “we’re going to fight” during a fiery press conference in the atrium of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan Friday.

The UFC 302 mixed-martial arts fight card will feature 12 matches headlined by top-ranked lightweight champion Islam Makhachev duking it out against fourth-ranked Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier. 

The ex-president is tight with UFC President Dana White, who told Deadline in February the two have been friends for 20 years.

“The guy is a fight fan,” he said. He’s been a fight fan.”

In March, the former president sat cageside with eldest daughter, Ivanka, at UFC 299 in Florida.
